Recession And Its Effects On Diet

So, I’m curious…
How has the recession affected your diet and food choices?

For me, as I wrote previously, I planned and have undertaken a shift to more beans, carrots, corn, and the like (you know, heartier stock) in order to keep costs down; the price on greens around here is often just outrageous.

What I didn’t anticipate was how strongly these foods and that other legume, the peanut (in butter form), would cause the ‘ole “carb cravings.” Still a healthy diet, mind you, but it’s made controlling calories all the more difficult.

In some ways, stress is likely a contributing factor as well. And yet, I’m having fun and doing what I want. It’s largely the same work (programming), except now it’s for my own and other entrepreneur’s projects rather than for a corporation and is more web-based than what I was doing at the j.o.b..

It’s also easy to see why there’s been a reported trend toward beer and away from wine and spirits. The reasons given in the aritcle where I read this in the latest Beer Advocate magazine attribute it to a money saving trend (though they point out wine and spirit drinkers don’t immediately jump to Bud, but instead to high end beers which are still less expensive). I blame it on the carbs! Just kidding… I think… a little. :)

Apropros the times, I thought you might enjoy this clip. There’s such truth in comedy, wouldn’t you agree?!

I don’t think these two ever waver on their calorie restriction!

  1. Sadly the recession has steered my diet away from organic and towards conventional. I just can’t afford organic right now. And with eating 3,500-4,000 calories a day on raw diet, that little bit extra per organic vegetable is a lot! I can’t wait until things pick up and I can splurge organically!

    And how did you get to customize your anti-spam word? is that a wp-plugin?

    Okay, I just answered my own question with firebug. peters-custom-anti-spam-image. Nice!

    Yeah, Peters-Custom-Anti-Spam-Image is a really fun WordPress plugin. One thing I learned the hard way is the automatic upgrade (of the plugin, not WP) doesn’t remember your list of words, so be sure to save them off. Are you a fellow developer, Mikkei?

  3. I don’t know if I can say developer, though I’d like to. I mostly do front end stuff, like CSS design. I can tweak my plugins, but that’s about it for development. Trying to learn PHP at the moment.
